Grown for its large, spectacular flowers, Rhododendron ‘Pink Lady’ is an evergreen shrub with voluminous, deep-pink blooms through the spring.
Contrasting with the gorgeous flowers, the evergreen leaves are glossy, olive-green and provide a good foil for other plants such as colourful perennials - which will also give another layer of planting to your garden.
Growing to around 2.5m high and wide, depending on how and where they are grown, Rhododendrons are ideally suited to container growing, and this will also help to keep them compact and of course easy to maintain.
Ideal to provide masses of colour in early spring, Rhododendrons thrive in moist soil and partial shade, and need acidic soil, so incorporate plenty of ericaceous compost to the planting hole or container when planting.
Supplied as an established plant in a 4L pot, 'Pink Lady' will reach H2.5m (8ft) x W2.5m (8ft) and suits container growing perfectly.
Rhododendrons have a shallow root systems to quickly capture rainfall, so need to be kept well-watered - mulch to keep them from drying out.
